WCF Scholars participate in 2017 Festival of Trees

Several of our scholars volunteered to decorate a Walker College Foundation tree for the Festival of Lights celebration in downtown Jasper. The tree was purchased and donation by Jasper Decorating and was decorated in traditional Walker College blue and white colors. Many of the ornaments are hand decorated by the students and the blue lights used in the tree are very visible at night. Thank you to these students for making our community beautiful and for supporting Hope for Women!

Scholars ring the bell for the Salvation Army's 2017 bell-ringing season

Our scholars have really stepped up their community service efforts this year and participated in several local fundraising activities during the holiday season. One of their projects included taking a day of bell ringing for the Salvation Army. They each took one hour time slots and represented the Salvation Army outside Son's Supermarket. Way to go scholars! WCF Scholars Emily Colburn and Landi Earnest are shown in the photo.

WCF Scholars donate toys to the Salvation Army

We are so proud of our 2015-16 Scholars' Society for choosing the Salvation Army as their community service project for the Fall semester. The students collected toys for the Christmas Toy Drop and took them by the Salvation Army after their last lunch meeting. SA Director Stephanie Holcomb gave the students a tour of the facility and talked to them about the importance of the Salvation Army and the support it provides to our community.
